Yardley, Pa. (March 30, 2016) – StayWell announced today that it will demonstrate its new Orthopedic Care Program during the American Organization of Nurse Executives (AONE) 2016 conference, March 31-April 1, in Fort Worth, Texas. The StayWell Orthopedic Care Program is designed to improve care and outcomes for patients undergoing hip and knee replacement surgeries, which are among the fastest growing medical procedures and a top driver of health care costs.
The StayWell team will be conducting product demonstrations at Booth #1425, showcasing the educational tools, digital reminders and notifications that are part of the orthopedic program. According to Julia McAllister, senior vice president, interactive solutions, StayWell, these features are designed to boost patient engagement, improve outcomes and reduce clinical costs that are related to post-discharge complications and readmissions for joint replacements.
“StayWell’s Orthopedic Care Program transforms patients from passive recipients to active participants, thus improving their medical status before surgery,” said Marshall K. Steele, MD, fellow of the American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons, and chairman, VOX Telehealth Advisory Board. “This can have wide-ranging effects: shorter hospitalizations, quicker recoveries, and improved overall care experience and cost of care.”
The AONE 2016 conference is expected to attract thousands of nursing professionals to discuss issues such as changing roles in practice settings, collaborative partnerships across the industry, and best practices in effectiveness and efficiency.
